Domestic Rivalry and Export Performance: Theory and Evidence from International Airline Markets

Joseph Clougherty () and Anming Zhang

No 6871, CEPR Discussion Papers from C.E.P.R. Discussion Papers

Abstract: The much-studied relationship between domestic rivalry and export performance consists of those supporting a national-champion rationale, and those supporting a rivalry rationale. While the empirical literature generally supports the positive effects of domestic rivalry, the national-champion rationale actually rests on firmer theoretical ground. We address this inconsistency by providing a theoretical framework that illustrates three paths via which domestic rivalry translates into enhanced international exports. Furthermore, empirical tests on the world airline industry elicit the existence of one particular path – an enhanced firm performance effect – that connects domestic rivalry with improved international exports.
